Had all my cars worked on by Al. I will always remember the time he helped me out when I bought my first car, I was 17 and didn't have a clue but Al fixed my car and gave me a break on the cost. He will be missed by all those who knew him. Rest in peace Al.

Sorry to hear of the passing of Al. Our thought and prayers are with you all at this difficult time. I work part-time for Al at Al and Pats Esso service station in 1962. Al was a good employer.
